Another Apple rival will reportedly help build the iPhone in 2018

This post was originally published on this site

Apple might compete with Samsung when it comes to selling smartphones, but the iPhone maker still depends on Samsung for supplies. In fact, Samsung is said to be the sole supplier of OLED displays for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8, but according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, another competitor could soon join the cause as Apple looks to boost production and diversify its supply chain.

9to5Mac shared the details of a note from Kuo over the weekend, who believes that Apple is “committed to having LG Display geared up for its OLED iPhone display business in 2018.”

Samsung is now Apple’s sole iPhone OLED panel supplier across front- and back-end manufacturing. We think LGD could institute a similar production model. However, considering its strengths are in front-end process, collaborating with a specialized back-end process provider like GIS will, in our view, significantly boost iPhone OLED panel output rate.

Kuo claims that the OLED panel has given Apple more trouble than any other component, so having another supplier would ease some of the pressure on Samsung’s display unit. While the OLED panel will likely be limited to the iPhone 8 this year, Apple is reportedly set to bring the component to all of its feature phones in 2018, which might necessitate additional suppliers.

This isn’t the first we’ve heard about LG’s rumored plans to join the iPhone supply chain in 2018 either. Just last month, The Korea Economic Daily reported that LG Innotek is set to start mass-production of flexible printed circuit boards next year. OLED screens require these boards, suggesting that LG is prepared to ramp up OLED production if Apple taps its services in 2018.

Kriti Sanon was body shamed by this Bollywood actress

Kriti Sanon who is busy with the promotions of her film Bareilly ki Barfi alongside Ayushmann Khurrana and Rajkummar Rao was the victim of body shaming this time.

Recently Kriti Sanon shared a video where she was grooving on ‘Hawa Hawa’ from Arjun Kapoor’s Mubarakan. After Kriti Sanon shared the video, Kamaal R Khan, as usual, left his expert comment on the same by saying, “Ye Dekho Kiriti Bechari, Raabta Ke flop Hone Ke Baad, mentally disturb Ho Gayee hai!”

The Hate Story actress Bhairavi Goswami responded to KRK’s tweet by body shaming Kriti Sanon. She wrote, “she is really behaving like a deranged woman. How did she become an actress. No headlight, no bumper. Even college students look better.” Kriti is yet to respond to this.

Shahid Kapoor says he’d gone mad after watching Bajirao Mastani

Shahid Kapoor is currently busy shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next big film, Padmavati along side Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone. The film is all set to release in November this year. 

Speaking about the film and working with the ace director SLB, Shahid said, “It’s an intense, romantic and a very looked-forward-to film for various reasons. I think it’s a labour of love of Bhansali. I had gone mad on Twitter after watching his last film Bajirao Mastani, appreciating everyone, and didn’t know I’d be part of his next film. It’s awesome to be working with someone whose work I have admired and loved, especially in the recent past. It is a great cast and going to be a huge film. I am really excited, but I want to underplay it, so I am trying to do that right now.”

Adding further the actor said, “I hope when people see the film, they realise that the heart of the film and intent of the film is very good. This country and the people who live in it, and specially the area we are talking about in the film, will be glorified and shown beautifully. I play a Rajput king and my character, I feel, will be admired by people.”

Imtiaz Ali does not accept Shah Rukh Khanâs compliment

Imtiaz Ali does not accept Shah Rukh Khan’s compliment

Imtiaz Ali, the master of directing unconventional yet relatable love stories is for the first time collaborating with superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Shah Rukh Khan who is known as the King of Romance and has worked closely with Yash Chopra for the same. Recently he had called Imtiaz a modern day Yash Chopra.

But here’s Imtiaz’ take on the reference made by SRK. He said, “I don’t even accept or register this comment [in my head]. It is not possible for me to actually digest this comment. I can’t accept it and then start to think, ‘why Shah Rukh said it and whether it is valid? Am I really like Yash Chopra in any way?’ I can’t. So, there is no question of feeling pressurized or happy. I have to accept it in a kind of superficial manner and with grace, but the fact of the matter is that I am not accepting this.” 

The director further talked about his 12-year journey in Bollywood and about the changes he has witnessed in his own filmmaking process. “I don’t know, I am not too sure. There are changes but I can’t pinpoint them. Basically, my process is very simple — I get a story in my mind and I gradually get very excited about it and one day I write it and then I want to make it. I am following the same process even now. It is not as if I think about it from any other point of view keeping market, critics or anything else in mind. I just get excited and I am like, ‘this is the story I have to make’. So, I think that has remained the same. I feel it’s (the urge to make a film) a kind of an infection and when it refuses to die down, then you have to do the operation, which is called a film,” Imtiaz concluded. 

This is the thing Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali were worried about

This is the thing Shah Rukh Khan and Imtiaz Ali were worried about

Imtiaz Ali’s is known for his intense films that connect to the audience. But this is the first time that Imitaz is to collaborate with superstar Shah Rukh Khan and the film has already created quite a buzz.

Imtiaz was recently asked by a leading daily if or not he was worried about the box office given that SRK was a part of it to which he replied, “Whether it is Shah Rukh Khan or Ranbir Kapoor, my bigger concern is whether the film will make enough money to pay its debt. That was my worry regarding this film too. I was aware that since SRK is a part of the film, it will become a number game — almost like a horse racing scenario, [where everyone is speculating whether] the horse will win thederby or not. But, it didn’t bother me. Shah Rukh has the same goal as I do; he just wants to make a good film. That is the only thing we were worried about.”

Talking further about his love for writing strong female protagonist plots, Imtiaz said, “I’ve always admired women more than men. They are a beautiful and intelligent species. I’m fascinated by women. There are times when I’m surprised to see that in most of my films, the female characters are smarter. And the influences come from real-life women around me. Take Sejal for instance. She is a Gujarati and there are certain things about that community that I admire. One of them is the status they give their women. Irrespective of whether she is educated or not, the woman has a prominent standing in a Gujarati family. I’ve always been startled by many of my Gujarati friends as they are so worldly wise but naïve at the same time. I included these traits in Sejal.”

Well well well, perfectionist in true sense!

I am not a God’s child, so I feel I have no entitlements as such. I am a regular person, who works extremely hard to be a part of the films that I do.”

She continues in the same vein, “And I’d rather be known for my characters. Stardom might be about what people say about me but I’ll never look at myself as a star as that will completely change my attitude.”

The tagline on the poster reads, Dream Dekhna Toh Basic Hota Hai and showcases Zaira walking the bridge in a school uniform with a backpack. We also see a Microphone coming out of Zaira’s bag and musical notes all over the skyline.

The trailer of the film will be released on August 2 and movie is slated for its release on Diwali this year. Secret Superstar is directed by Advait Chauhan and revolves around the story of a young girl (played by Zaira Wasim) who dreams of becoming a singing sensation but her father is against the idea. She then decides to post her singing videos hiding her face in a Burkha on her own YouTube channel and that’s when Aamir’s character of a music director comes into play. 

Secret Superstar is produced by Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, Zee Studios and Akash Chawla.

Mubarakan gathers pace at the box office

Arjun Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Ileana D’Cruz and Athiya Shetty starrer comedy Mubarakan, which is directed by Anees Bazmee saw a good jump in the collections on Sunday, leaving it with a healthy weekend total of 22.91 crores.  Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted, “#Mubarakan Fri 5.16 cr, Sat 7.38 cr, Sun 10.37 cr. Total: ₹ 22.91 cr. India biz… Growth on Sun [vis-à-vis Fri]: 100.97%.”  Mubarakan was released on 2825 screens including – 2350 screens in India and 475 screens in the overseas market.

The comedy started on a low note, earning just 5.6 crores on its opening day. This came as a surprise as comedies traditionally get good openings. It wasn’t tanked by the critics, who gave it decent reviews. But thanks to its clean content, it emerged as a family entertainer and saw almost a 100 per cent growth on Sunday. The makers must have heaved a sigh of relief but the big trouble is that the Shah Rukh Khan-Anushka Sharma starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal is supposed to bombard the box-office this coming Friday

The other releases like Raag Desh and Indu Sarkar performed below par at the box office. While Raag Desh reportedly earned around one crore, Indus Sarkar allegedly garnered 3.39 crores during the weekend.

Alia looked no less than a princess in a shimmer blouse with a rosy train from Manish’s couture while Ranveer looked everything royal in his royal blue sequined sherwani. Manish who’s known to bring a modern touch to Indian silhouettes titled his show as Sensual Affair and it was dedicated to every woman who’s unafraid to express her sensuality.

Before walking the ramp, Alia told a popular daily, “I’m walking with Ranveer for the first time. Whenever I’m with Ranveer, there’s a different level of energy and enthusiasm because he just has that inside him. He’s very special,”

Talking about his collection Manish said, “Indian couture is ready to make its presence felt on global red carpets. With this couture collection, you will see a marked departure from the traditional approach to bridal couture and instead a complete collection that can be worn in numerous scenarios from weddings to grand gala events,”

Just like each time, Manish’s collection was every bit glamorous. The designer made use of luxurious silks, velvets, satin and tulle in tones of burgundy, teal, greys and rose in his this year’s collection of around 85 looks.
